Welcome to Wild Echo Bison Reserve and our Bison Quest Adventure Vacations. While our website (and we) have been around for a few years, the idea of a blog is a new one. Well, maybe not a new idea, but certainly a new idea for me. With my “love” for computers (that, for those who know me, is using extreme sarcasm), the idea of actually subjecting myself to this hateful task on a regular basis is intimidating, to say the least. But in the end, the desire to share what we have here, to make a difference in our exciting, awesome and incredible wild world around us in even a small way, is overwhelming. So here I am. With a blog.
We’re always being asked how, and why, Bison Quest was started. I’ll talk about the “how” some other time, but the “why” seems as good a way to introduce us as any. We – all of us- live in a fascinating and intricately connected world, but I’m often amazed, and dismayed, at how little of it most of us understand. Or are even aware of. And, if we aren’t aware of it, then how can we save it? How can we save us? And that, in a nutshell, is why we wanted to bring Bison Quest into existence. Because Craig and I want to share the natural world with those of you who live in worlds of concrete and steel and asphalt, but know that there’s more to life than that. To those of you who know that this world around you is worth exploring and understanding – indeed, is critical that it be understood. Because, in the end, what happens to this complicated world outside of our cities and towns, is where the future lies for all of us.
